It isn't a fashion show by any means, but being in public means I can't get away with lazy.
Who am I kidding, I love it. ;)
Last night's workout of the day (or WOD in Crossfit speak) was a 1 mile run for time and a three rep max deadlifts. I did the same workout six weeks ago and was able to shave 10 seconds off my mile and add 50 pounds to my deadlifts. :D We participated in a new year's challenge so all of our workouts this week are to be compared to workouts we did six weeks ago. Should be interesting!
Lifting is more specific than running as far as what I need to wear. Shoes are the biggest criteria. Traditional running shoes have too much tread, which translates to an uneven foot surface. You start packing the weight on the bars and you'll notice that tread angle quickly. You can't hold your balance. And honestly, I've found I have less foot issues with running in this smaller, no tread shoe anyway.
When we first looked into CF I was confuzzled by the tall socks. I couldn't figure out why that was such a staple. Now I know. And if you look at my previous photos in skirts or dresses, you'll know too. O:) I'm happy to report that after my first tall sock wearing workout, I don't have huge nasty bruises on my shins!
